nothing will hold/nothing will fit

this morning, there was a full moon caught in the cattails by the water's edge. the air was cool and wet and heavy, like a blanket left out on the lawn overnight. a cormorant incised a bright path through the mist on the water.

to my left, the moon was setting, and on my right, the sun was rising.

there's tea in the morning, the kitchen at night, what grows in the garden, and now a run around the lake or through the greenway. i asked my particular friend if he would come and cheer for me at a race in november. he said yes, in the way that really means no.
